SOCIAL IMPACT at Cisco LIVE

Learn about featured Corporate Social Responsibility sessions, virtual volunteering opportunities and other efforts we’re putting forth to power an inclusive future.

POWERING AN INCLUSIVE FUTURE

At Cisco Live in 2016, we announced our goal to positively impact 1 billion people through our social impact grants and signature programs by 2025. The life-changing work of new and established nonprofit partners is helping us make rapid progress, and 469 million people have been positively impacted as of FY19.

During Cisco Live 2020, you’ll have a few opportunities to learn more about their work – as well as explore other corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives.
